Nicholas Marsh has successfully defended his dissertation for the degree dr.philos: "Because We Have the Maxim Gun: The Relationship Between Arms Acquisition by Non‐State Groups and Violence".

The dissertation addresses the question of how arms acquisition by non‐state groups relates to violence.

The defense was also notable for having been the first all-digital defense by a PRIOite since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Congratulations Nic!
